New ASP.NET "How Do I" videos on "Atlas" and other cool new pages of content

Joe Stagner has released the first 2 "How Do I" Videos in his new series on learning "Atlas." We have had so much success with the short "How Do I" video format that we plan on releasing tons and tons more of these over the course of the year. I know you will enjoy it. Also, we've added some new design flair to the www.asp.net site so be sure to explore -- you'll find it easier then ever to find more content then you can handle ;) -- check out the new videos page , essential downloads , books page , starter kits , live webcasts , data tutorials , and more. We are also just beginning work on a *huge* overhaul to our www.asp.net experience -- we probably won't be able to show you much of the work until towards the end of the year, but we are investing...

Open Source Web Designs

One of the things that I rarely have the time to do is to create really nice looking web templates. Stuff that is just graphically pleasing, between work, school and having a social life, I just don't get time to do it. But reading one of the many blogs that I read in the morning, I came across this site called Open Source Web Designs . It's a great idea, and a fun way to share your artistic talents. Each template has it's own EULA, so you'll have to have a look to determine if it will work for you (and your business if that's the case), but the idea of having a good looking CSS designed page it awesome. I would love to see someone do something similar to this, but instead of simple HTML and CSS, to use Master Pages, HTML and CSS so that you...

Recipe: Implementing Role Based Security with ASP.NET using Windows Authentication and SQL Server

Problem You are building an Intranet expense report application for your organization, and want to enable role-based authentication and authorization capabilities within it. Specifically, you want to create logical roles called “approvers”, “auditors”, and “administrators” for the application, and grant/deny end-users access to functionality within the application based on whether they are in these roles. Because your application is an Intranet solution, you want to use Windows Authentication to login the users accessing the application (avoiding them having to manually login). However, because the roles you want to define are specific to your application, you do not want to define or store them within your...

Recipe: Dynamic Site Layout and Style Personalization with ASP.NET

Problem: You want to enable end-users visiting your web-site to dynamically customize the look and feel of it. Specifically, you want to enable them to choose different content layouts for the site, as well as different style experiences (colors, fonts, etc).
